When I was growing up my parents bought household needs with cash in their pockets. If something was needed but the money was not available you did not get it or it was put aside on the layaway plan. People saved up the money in this layaway plan. Nowadays we all use credit. From individuals to governments. Yes I may be a simpleton by thinking I can change the ways of the world but things would be a lot simpler would they not if we did not let ourselves spend beyond our means. Just look what a mess we are in now ! ! !.
